When gaming fans think of RPGs, The Elder Scrolls series immediately comes to mind. It’s synonymous with action role-playing games and has revolutionized the gaming industry for the most part. Every time one of these games is announced, there is a huge buzz.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is no exception. It was teased at E3 2018’s event, and ever since then, fans have been waiting eagerly to download it. It appears that time is coming sooner than expected for select gamers.

Those who registered for early access within a particular window currently have access to the latest installment. This news was announced by Bethesda directly. However, access is being given in waves. You’ll get to explore certain components of the game, but to complete it in its entirety, you’ll probably have to wait until its official release.

This makes sense given that Bethesda doesn’t want to spoil the fun and hype for those who weren’t fortunate enough to register for early access. For those who fit into this category, they’ll have to wait just a bit longer. It’s probably worth it, though.

Even though this version will have a mobile format, Bethesda is still claiming it will have console-quality graphics. That’s pretty impressive and intriguing to fathom. Being able to explore the world of The Elder Scrolls on a mobile device anywhere seems like an amazing time.

There was confirmation that The Elder Scrolls: Blades will not have an open-world environment, though. Instead, it will have inter-connecting stages that still seem pretty large. That doesn’t mean Bethesda has thrown out the idea of an open-world design altogether.

It appears they’re going to gauge consumer interest and see how this game does on the mobile marketplace. It’s completely free, so there should be many gamers checking it out here pretty shortly.

Todd Howard, the director and executive producer at Bethesda, did go on to say there could be plans of making this game available to consoles and PCs at a later date. It all really depends on how this mobile game does. From what we’ve seen in trailers, it looks true to the series. There will be plenty of ways to customize your character, from armor suits to weapon upgrades.

It’s hard to complain when such a storied RPG is coming to the mobile gaming marketplace. It has the chance to do well and set a precedent for future RPG mobile games.
